It’s Time to Submit Your Ideas to the NBAA Tech Committee

June 2019


I have been representing Citation operators at the NBAA Technical Committee with operator-submitted issues and questions since 2011. With the next committee meeting scheduled at the end of July, now is the time to let me know what you want Textron to address this year. Issues can be related to airframe, engines, avionics, or parts availability, among many others.

The NBAA Technical Committee is the Citation operators’ path to getting issues heard by the right people. Committee members are pilots, technicians, and FBO & MRO representatives.

The tech committee is an effective tool with direct access to Citation leadership. As a group, we help Textron identify areas to improve aircraft equipment, operations, and services for the benefit of the fleet of aircraft that they have produced over the years. This is made possible with regular interaction and feedback from you, the Citation operator.

I strongly urge you to reach out to me directly or other members of the NBAA Technical Committee with questions or topics that you would like for us to consider and discuss during our next meeting.

If you would like to be on a list of Citation operators that I routinely make contact with, please email me at Chuck.Zahnow@DuncanAviation.com. I want to check in regularly to see how things are going. I especially want to encourage out-of-production aircraft operators to open up and let me know what issues you are seeing.
